My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that the role of an educator
is to motivate, facilitate, and accelerate the intellectual development of students.
I use a variety of interactive
techniques in my classroom to achieve these objectives, including student-led
discussions, group-learning activities, and in-class problem solving.
I also think that it is important to teach students transferable skills, which is why I have always emphasized
writing as a tool to teach the scientific method, to sharpen critical thinking skills, and to enhance students' ability
to communicate effectively.
